Robert Allen Halbert (Bob, Bobby, Bobo, “Hubert”), “Larger Than Life”, born on March 13, 1947 in San Angelo, TX began his trail ride in Heaven on March 12, 2024.
Bob excelled in all sports in high school and attended McMurry Univ. on a football scholarship. He received his BA degree in Physical Education and History. In 1969, Bob played semi-pro football for the Ft. Worth Braves. He coached and taught in McCamey and Iraan, TX. He then decided he needed to make more money and began a career as a Scout (the “best job in the oilfield”) for Exxon Oil in Midland, TX. In 1982 he joined his brother Dan in operating Halbert LPG of Eldorado, TX until retirement in 2009.
Bob overcame numerous (over 100) procedures and surgeries including a heart transplant in 2014. H was involved in many community organizations, was a 32nd Degree Mason in San Angelo Lodge 1260, the Suez Shriners in San Angelo, SA Gun Club, and a member of First Baptist Church, San Angelo.
Bob loved life and lived it to the fullest or as he would say: “don’t look back, they might be gaining on ya!” He was a man’s man!! He had a killer smile, was happy, always joking, looking for a good time, and always had a story to tell with friends. He loved crappie fishing, trail rides, shooting, loading bullets, and poker. He and Billie loved their trips to Winstar. Bob was always sitting on “GO!” He loved his family and was so proud of his kids.
He is survived by wife of 37 years, Billie Halbert, son Jarrod McCarroll (Staci) of Lenexa, KS, daughters: Tuesdee Obadiah of Leander, TX, Kauli Halbert of Burleson, TX, and like-a-son Jason Polser (Margaret) of Canyon Lake, TX. Grandchildren are Jagger McCarroll, Iris and Edie Obadiah, Taylor and Dylan Hines, and Dylan Floyd. Also survived by: brother Dan Halbert (Allene) and sister-in-law Judy Dover (Wade) and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Jack and Frankie Halbert, and brother Jay.
Bob will be sorely missed by his best buddy, David Darnell, and his coffee buddies Dan McClung, Ronnie Roach, Burl Terrill, and many other lifelong friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice.
Memorial Services will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at Johnson’s Funeral Home, San Angelo, TX.
And as Bob would say, “Add-ios!”
